that former editors like rebecca brooks work remains chief executive of the parent company, must have sanctioned the hacking. something she always denied. she's a close friend with prime minister david cameron, and an awkward fact, but that didn't stop him from saying this this government is making sure the fact that the public, murder victims, terror victims who had their phones hacked is disgraceful. >> reporter: one thing that went wrong for the prime minister was the decision to hire this man as communications guru, andy coulson is a former news of the world editor who lost his job at number 10 and may now be facing criminal charges. this man's son died in a terrorist attack and thinks sensitive cell phone messages were accessed by coulson's reporters. >> the thought that somebody may have been listening to me begging for david to phone home was very difficult. i thought we were in a dire place, i didn't think anybody could make it darker. >> reporter: for rupp pert murdoch the dramatic decision to close "news of the world" doesn't mean the scandal is over. there is still a police

hear from her. why are we hearing from her now? >> reporter: well, i think the government here, brooke, is trying to give a sort of pr push as it were, going to selected broadcasters, talking to selected audience, in this case, the french public, you know, the gadhafi government is up in arms about the french government admitting that they are dropping weapons to rebels southwest of the capital here, and certainly, brooke, they're trying to get across the message that gadhafi is strong and he's not going anywhere. one important thing that ayesha gadhafi said is that the family is tightly knit. certainly in the early days of the conflict there were word and rumors whether the family would split and sort of potentially take over at the expense of mow har moammar gadhafi. we just got back from the green square, certainly the biggest crowd we've seen here in tripoli for some time, and moammar gadhafi got on the airwaves with a message, he effectivity threatened revenge on nato countries and likened the revenge of the libyan people to a swarm. >> not only were we hearing from his daughter,
the government shutdown during the mid-90s? >> brooke, it would be much worse. a government shutdown is one thing. even in the government shutdown vital government services will continue. people got medicare checks and medicaid, social security, unemployment checks. the government continued to pay its creditors what was due. but if the debt ceiling is not raised next week, none of that happens. government simply doesn't have any money to pay medicare, medicaid, social security, unemployment insurance, nor can it pay its creditors. it has a limited amount of money but that amount of money continues to dwindle as it tries to pay off everybody it owes. that's why interest rates will go up. everybody who owes money or the government owes money to, including international lenders, are going to get nervous. >> you're saying the situation would be worse come next week. i've also done reading here. you say the budget deficit isn't our biggest problem, it's joblessness. let me ask you this, what does washington need to do, robert reich with regard to the debt ceiling, negotiations, that would create a bet

of the world." his son james will also give evidence, and will the former boss, rebekah brooks. the scandal has already forced two a senior police officers to resign. >> he is ben yates of the are no longer, resigning just a day after his boss, sir paul stevenson. both paying the price for failing to get to grips with the hacking scandal. so said the mayor of london. >> i regret to say i have just come off the phone john yates, who tendered his resignation. >> boras johnson said both men had jumped and were not pushed. but he made it clear he had done everything he could to encourage them. >> it is a concatenation of issues and questions. it is going to make it very difficult for them to continue to do their jobs in the way they wanted. >> yates began the day determined not to resign, telling colleagues he would not submit to trial by media. he ended it explaining why he was going. >> we in the police service are truly accountable. those of us to take on the most difficult jobs clearly have to stand up and be counted when things go wrong. sadly, there continues to be a huge amount of inaccurate
of it that the "news of the world" was sacrificed in order to try and protect rebekah brooks' position at news international. but in effect rather than her being -- her departure being announced, "news of the world" was offered up as an alternative to try to deal with the whole thing. do you regret now making that decision? do you regret closing the "news of the world" to try and save rebekah brooks? in hindsight do you wish you'd accepted her resignation to start with, in order that that paper with a fine tradition could probably continue and all of the people who are now out of work could still be in work? >> i regret very much the fate of people who will not be able to find work. the two decisions were totally unrelated. absolutely and totally unrelated. >> so when you came into the u.k. and said your priority was rebekah brooks -- >> i'm not sure i did say that. i was quoted as saying that. i walked outside my flat and had about 20 microphones stuck in my mouth so i'm not sure what i said. >> so you were misquoted? >> i'm not saying that. i just don't remember. >> i'm sorry, mr. chairman.
to the number three spot in the company. and then there is rebekah brooks, a rupert murdoch protege. she was a top executive before she resigned on friday. she was arrested a couple of days later. let's get straight to london to atika shubert. these witnesses are not under subpoena. they don't have to say a word, do they? >> no. they don't, but it's still a court and can be held in tempt of court for example. even though there is no particular oath here, there is an incredible amount of pressure on them to answer these questions. remember, particularly in the cases of james murdoch and rebekah brooks, they have told lawmakers in previous hearings the this was the end of it. it was a rogue reporter and a private investigator and that was the end of it. clearly, it was not. because it turns out that there are, in fact, thousands of phone mail messages that may have been hacked and now they are back in front of lawmakers again trying to explain why they didn't tell the full story the first time around. >> atika, we have been paying close attention to this since early this morning. you know
am aware of that mr. brooks or mr. heaton had knowledge of. certainly her knowledge of those things has not been clear. i have seen no evidence of impropriety. >> [unintelligible] is that right? >> yes. >> in october of 2010, did you still believe it when you said you would vigorously pursue the truth? >> yes. >> if you were not worrying bend? >> i do not know. >> you acknowledge they you were misled? >> yes. >> are you aware that in march [unintelligible] police? >> i was not aware at the time. it had been amended. >> if you were anyone else in the organization? investigating it at the time? explaining why? >> let me say something. this is not an excuse. this is less than 1% of the company. distinguished people and professionals. >> [unintelligible] what i am trying to establish is paca how your wrongdoing was -- establish is how your wrongdoing was established at the time. were you made aware of [unintelligible] >> [unintelligible] >> what did they do, subsequent to the arrest? >> i told the investigators and eventually they investigated further. >> what did you do to investigate
for running the company at the time of the illegality, your son and rebekah brooks. >> when a company closes down, it is natural for people to lose their jobs. we have in this case an army that's continuing every effort to see that those people are employed in other divisions of the company, if they're not part of the small group -- well, i don't know how big the group, whatever group was involved in criminality. >> did you close it because of the criminality? >> hmm? >> did you close the paper down because of the criminality? >> yes, we felt ashamed of what had happened and felt to bring it to a close. >> people lied to you and lied to their readers? >> we had broken our trust with our readers. but it's the important point was we had broken our trust with our readers. >> are you aware that there are other forms of illicit surveillance being used by private investigators that were used by news international? >> other forms of? >> illicit surveillance, computer hacking -- >> no. >> if the evidence is produced -- >> i mean i think all news organizations have used private detectives and do so i
